The Lounge

homework support + study skills practice
grades 6-12 | $250 per month; $150 for current one-on-one students


Give us your tired, your unmotivated, your huddled and quivering mass of a student, yearning to learn stress-free! Give us the wretched refuse of your kid’s backpack, and the planners they aren’t using!

You get them here, and we provide a supportive, structured environment to help students with the daily responsibilities of homework and study habits. Stop the slow, agony-march to mediocrity! Come in to The Lounge to be nurtured in self-directed and self-regulated learning.

  • Sessions are supervised by experienced and trained staff (who also tutor) at our center.

  • Friendly accountability helps students remain on track and get help when needed.

  • Resources include internet and computer access, general school supplies, a library of books and textbooks, and, usually, a healthy dose of warmth and mothering from one of our directors, Lisa and Tatiana.

  • Healthy snacks (available for purchase), comfortable couches, a popcorn machine, pillows and chairs help keep the environment inviting and relaxing.

How it works

  • Students are greeted by one of our fabulous tutors, who help them settle in for an afternoon of productive studying and metacognitive.

  • Tutors help students develop a game plan for how they will spend their time, teaching time management strategies and helping students prioritize their work.

  • Students are encouraged to use their planners, log in to school web sites such as Illuminate and Schoology, and to be accountable for their own learning.

  • Tutors check in regularly to answer questions, monitor progress, review work and facilitate well-earned breaks.

  • Students leave having completed work and feeling good about their efforts.
